Default Planning 1st build

Hello all, I'm planning my first build. I have a 1980 Jamis Boss Cruiser that's been hanging around my basement for years. Just put new tires, tubes and brakes on her. Dropped her off at local bike shop for wheel truing and tune up.
Been reading a lot of forums on what type of motor 2 or 4 stroke.
Looks like I'm leaning towards the 4 stroke. I live in the area near Pirate Cycles. I been calling them. but no one ever answers. Would like to know what is the best option at this point in time ... What is the best now? I have a budget of $400 to $600 EZ silent drive? Grubee T belt?
I wanted to start riding for exercise. Have many hill around here, basically would like to assist on those hills. I'm not a lightweight... 250ibs
Any ideas
Thank you for reading

Look forward to your thoughts

Capt Dave
